I have a 17" hp laptop, with decent specs: 8GB ram, i5 intel cpu. It is quite old however, so I don't think it will reach a good price if I sell it. I normally use a mac and have a gaming pc and monitor for gaming. Both devices are higher speced than the hp. Is there a good use for it another than selling it?

You can donate it to a charity that you support, gift it to a younger relative or keep it as a backup laptop.

Just with those specs I would say you could get a minimum of £100 as long as it’s in decent condition.

Use it to automatically back up your data onto. And as disaster recovery in case your Mac fails.

Also if you fit an SSD to the HP and give it a clean and lean install of Windows or install Linux on it, I bet for word processing and web browsing and simple spreadsheets and video conferencing - it'd be just as fast as your other computers.

If you sell it or give it away, make sure to remove the drive or use one of the many secure wipe utilities available.
